Personal highlights

  1. Giraffe Centre: small park at the border of Nairobi to protect an endangered species
  2. Giraffe Manor: incredibly expensive hotel, just to have breakfast with the giraffes
  3. Giraffe: utterly gracious animal with a ridiculously long neck up to 2 meters long
  4. Feeding: tame and friendly species that eats out of your hands (at least here)
  5. Patterns: there are 6 living subspecies with all different coat patterns
